This was our 16th house exchange since our first in 1992 and the first one in the USA.
Entry to the US can be a bit daunting with busy airports, daunting ID checks by stony-faced homeland security agents including finger-printing and photographs. But we "lucked out" as the Americans would say and ended up giving a note of the house exchange website Intervac to the guy who'd just been responsible for processing us. Not only that, but the time from taxiing on the runway, disembarking, security check, baggage claim, finding a taxi and the taxi ride across the city took an amazingly brief 50 minutes.
Our home for the next two weeks was to be in Brookline, a separate municipality from Boston, but just 4 miles from Boston city centre which we could reach easily by a 20 minute subway ride. Brookline is where JFK grew up.
